Dog Care & Training Course Bundle

Dog grooming and training has become a strong cornerstone in the animal care industry. There are plenty of opportunities for people who love animals to either work in grooming or dog training, or better yet to start your own pet grooming business. The first step is to follow the Dog Care & Training Course Bundle which will open up a world of possibilities for you to work with animals and turn your passion into a successful venture. Pet owners are constantly on the lookout for good dog groomers. They may not necessarily have the time or skill to groom their pet. Grooming is not something that only the rich and famous are privileged to have. Almost anyone can hire a dog groomer because it has become commonplace, and is a popular concept.

Grooming is not just about having a pretty coat of fur, it is also for the overall health and welfare of your dog. While grooming is natural to animals, there are hard to reach places and in such moments the professional expertise of a dog groomer comes in very useful. It is natural for animals to groom themselves, however, there may be hard to reach places and a professional groomer will be able to ensure the animal is groomed properly. The course bundle also focuses on dog training and behaviour. It offers insight into why some dogs are aggressive, afraid, anxious or hyper. These questions are thoroughly looked at and the course will help you find answers. Gain a good understanding of what triggers your pet, how to handle challenging situations, how to calm your pet and apply reward-based techniques to correct your pet. The course will enable learners to understand certain habits of their pet dog and what triggers these habits. You will also learn how to teach your dog to slowly move away from unhealthy behavioural patterns using basic commands.

The Dog Care & Training Course Bundle will cover a number of key topics on god grooming techniques, types of breeds and how to groom, dog psychology, how dogs respond to rewards, correcting problematic behavioural patterns and understanding basic training. Learn how to resolve disruptive and challenging behaviour and enjoy your warm and fuzzy pet.

The course bundle has been endorsed under the ABC Awards and Certa Awards Quality Licence Scheme. This means that Global Edulink has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the course bundle it offers, meet defined quality criteria. The completion of this course bundle alone does not lead to a regulated qualification* but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills gained. The Learner Unit Summary may be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this subject. To this end the learning outcomes of the course bundle have been benchmarked at Level 3 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of demand/complexity involved in successful completion by the learner.

The course bundle itself has been designed by Global Edulink to meet specific learners’ and/or employers’ requirements which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications. ABC Awards & Certa Awards endorsement involves robust and rigorous quality audits by external auditors to ensure quality is continually met. A review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.
